Secret Santa gift for Helen.

This a short post to show what I made with that cross stitching I was doing. Yesterday was one of my group's Christmas 'do' and we had a Secret Santa swap. The triangular shape of the cross stitch turned into a strawberry ornament/ pincushion. It is a Blackbird Designs ornament from the Just Cross stitch ornament edition 2006. I really loved making it and I might just have to make one for myself as well. This one was for Helen. I'm not sure but maybe the Santa Rubber Duck I put on the lid of the box might have almost been her favourite part of the gift - I know some other people were trying to steal it.

 

Cute isn't it ?

Hi Lynda, your stitching is so beautiful, & gifts you made are so gorgeous, no wonder it was so well received!
I'm sorry to read of the issues with your Mum; what a load it is for you, I hope she (& you) are happy with the care she is now getting. x
